About us

International Women for Development (IWD) in The Netherlands is a volunteer non-profit membership-based development-oriented women’s organization.

Our Mission

integrate women and youth into society and help develop it through holding specialized training courses to ensure the trend towards effective participation, work, achievement, capacity building, and adoption of youth initiatives that contribute to the development process in general.

Our vision

that women and youth have an important role in the development of society, and that there are effective and skilled leaders, in addition to having a leading role to contribute and assist in the comprehensive development for an integrated and cohesive society that enjoys its rights and performs its duties.

The International Women’s Development Foundation is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, based in the Netherlands.
The IWD Foundation was established to support women and youth to express their opinions and needs, and to help them start their own projects and participate in development, especially female immigrants and newcomers, as women and youth among the newcomers represent a broad base, but their role is still marginal or their participation is still modest and not mentioned in development. .
The IWD Foundation is also concerned with culture and heritage and focuses on everything related to them, because culture and heritage are an integral part of civilization, such as literature, arts, heritage, customs, traditions, customs, principles, ideas, legacies, cultural tastes and other various aspects that distinguish certain societies from other societies, so any attempt To separate culture and heritage and to build and develop societies is a failed attempt. At the same time, culture has an interactive relationship with development and community building. Culture today is an essential part of comprehensive development, as no future planning in the field of development can succeed in the absence of a cultural approach that contributes significantly today. And effective in raising the level of individuals politically, economically, socially, scientifically and educationally.
Culture is also one of the most important reasons that work to establish and develop societies, as it is the main pillar in them
